Months and months behind, but still fundamentally a very satisfying kill. Congratulations are owed to my guildmates for their perseverance and patience with various strat adjustments and adaptations to different comps, well after most of us never wanted to hear the words "So be it." again.

Special thanks to the people who spent a ton of time wiping to him, but weren't in the group for the final kill: Gonktarget, Shabadu, Kurapica, Suno, and Wodin.

Just in time for Ruby Sanctum!

In case anyone ever wondered what EJ vent might be like, let me share my personal highlight from during our progress:

Gurgthock: relwin said he'd be home in 7 minutes no idea how he got that number
Tejax: is there some sporting event on that ends in
Ariesz: HOCKEY
Tejax: 7 minutes?
Ariesz: oh... no
Scorned: it's the average time it takes to asphyxiate a hooker
Gurgthock: uh
Cayu: amateur

i miss raiding with carebare :< she makes me feel like i am not the only person that hates everyone
Aldriana: I am an asshole, it just so happens that some of my colleagues are even *bigger* assholes.
[R] [85:Neux:2]: i hear if you die on Good Friday they are going to make it where you can't get rezzed until easter sunday
Khazal: Yeah, I don't know about Magic Rainbow Unicorn Land, but here in Reality, Rhyolith is the worst encounter Blizzard has ever designed.

Grats! Please tell me Gonk sat for a druid.

Hey guys, I heard that Blizzard puts out these things called "patches" that contain "content"

Yeah but it hasn't happened since Ulduar.

In a manner of speaking...yes. Though, he had a pet emergency he had to attend to.

Grats.

You guys must've spent more than 10 hours total listening to his RP speech in the beginning of the fight?

That would entail more than 600 wipes, so no. More like 3.5 hours. And on that note, I'm going to go cry now.

Think about all the glorious 10man wipes yet to come due to dispel resists while you're at it.

Grats all on 25, by the way, and Kadrok on his mount.

in before JOHN FUCKING MADDEN

I cringe/shudder anytime someone says "So be it" to me now in daily conversation.

To be fair I think a lot of us are alt-tabbed the first 90% of the speech. I know I usually am

Hell, I don't know about heroic, but I know I spent a good bit of time watching TV during the pre-fight blah blah on regular, wiping for two nights per week, at least four weeks. Christ, never again.

Congratulations, guys!

Congratulations.

And, was it the best encounter in all of Wrath (barring the hours upon hours of 'Roleplay')?
